Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the final form of the Pentateuch. Regulative principles that leave the question of reasonable interpretation are in the first place and can be debatable. The final redactor has certainly done as a heuristic concept of some good service. Usually interpretation aims at consistency foundation and is based on the useful prejudice that the lyrics have a consistent meaning. Both the traditional and the historical-critical exegesis serve as a hermeneutical apriori. The difference to conventional diachronic exegesis is not thereby repealed. It results from the reversal that synchrony is integrated into a reconstruction of the historical tradition, but diachronic investigations serve as a preparation for an understanding of the final form, with their sense relief gives the metes and bounds of the exegetical effort. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: historical-critical exegesis; Pentateuch; traditional exegesis
